Re: Project Unicorn - a light duty trail rig

I'm pretty impressed. Particularly in light of the fact Dallas is out on the boat right now.

Oh if he printed tracking, it shipped. It just means he squeezed it out before leaving for the water.

Re: Project Unicorn - a light duty trail rig

Yes it would have been good to wait and use that + the 4th of July sale.

Project Unicorn - a light duty trail rig

Cal, when doing the radio install, were you able to take the retaining clips off of your old trim bezel for use on the new bezel without breaking any of the plastic on the old bezel? If so, how’d you do it? I’d like to keep my old bezel intact if at all possible, but I can’t immediately see how to get the clips off without snapping the tabs that they attach to, or at least breaking the tiny plastic nubs that lock the retainers into place.

Yes, I used a little pick and a pair of needle nose.

Then a few days later I realized I can never reinstall a 1 din so I threw the old bezel away anyway

Re: Project Unicorn - a light duty trail rig

I thought of using a little pick. HF has a coupon right now for a set of four picks for 99 cents, so that’s on today’s shopping list.

I don’t want to destroy that old bezel because it’ll be of value to someone. It’s got a fancy fake wood grain finish.
